Roof Repair

Habitat for Humanity of Tuscaloosa is excited to partner with Strengthen Alabama Homes to offer residents of Tuscaloosa and Pickens Counties the opportunity to apply for a new FORTIFIED roof!

What is the FORTIFIED Roof™ Program?

Habitat for Humanity of Tuscaloosa has partnered with Strengthen Alabama Homes to provide wind mitigation on existing, owner-occupied, single family homes in our service area. Funding for this program comes from the insurance industry. The work completed on your home will meet the FORTIFIED Roof™ standard. For more information about FORTIFIED roofs, visit www.fortifiedhome.org.

What are the benefits of having a FORTIFIED Roof™?

A home with a FORTIFIED Roof™ designation may help you receive a discount on the wind portion of your homeowner’s insurance. A recent study by The University of Alabama shows that homes with a FORTIFIED Roof™ sell for approximately 7% more than homes with a non-FORTIFIED roof.

What should I know about the program?

  •  If approved, the grant will cover the cost of a new roof up to $10,000.]

  •  If the grant award is not enough to cover the cost of your roof replacement,  you will be responsible for the additional cost
